St. Michael Catholic Church is located in Marquette, Michigan near Northern Michigan University. Catholic Campus Ministry for Northern Michigan University is also attached to the parish. We are a welcoming and evangelizing community that strives to reach out to others.

A little bit More  about St. Michael Parish


St. Michael is a Roman Catholic Church community in the Diocese of Marquette, Michigan. We are a parish blessed with 700+ families. The St. Michael campus includes the Catholic Campus Ministry for Northern Michigan University (CCM for NMU.) Together we form a vibrant active parish community attempting to live and share the Gospel of Jesus with one another and with those beyond our doors.


A Tithing Parish. In addition to the financial and physical plant support for CCM, St. Michael is a tithing parish and donates 5% of it's annual receipts to regularly support local charitable groups such as Baycliff Health Camp, Room at the Inn, the Jansen House, the Care Clinic, St. Vincent de Paul Society, Habitat for Humanity, as well as other groups or individuals in or beyond the Marquette area who are in need.

Our Mission Statement

We, the faith community of Saint Michael Catholic Parish, united through baptism and empowered by the Holy Spirit, strive to proclaim and live the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We welcome all to celebrate, praise and give thanks to God.

Strengthened by Word and Sacrament, we serve with justice, peace and love in the name of the Lord.
